How Liver Function Testing Works: It's Simple
Benefits of Liver Function Tests:
Our Liver Function home blood test kit checks multiple markers to measure normal liver function and to detect the presence of liver disease and other liver disorders.
The liver plays a complex role in the body including the metabolism of drugs and toxic substances, management of blood sugar levels, vitamin storage and maintaining hormonal balance.
Fortunately, the liver has an incredible capacity to regenerate, and can respond well to healthy lifestyle changes.

Using a Gentle Fingerprick Blood Sample, This Liver Function Test Measures:
Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme found in the human body in the kidneys, liver, bones and digestive system.
High levels of ALP typically result from liver damage or if you have increased bone cell activity.
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme mainly found in your liver. ALT is used by your body to break down food into energy, with levels in the blood normally low.
Following liver damage, the levels of ALT in your blood will rise making it a useful means to indicate liver problems.
Fluctuation of ALT levels is normal over the course of the day, and can also increase in response to strenuous physical exercise.
High levels of bilirubin in the blood can lead to yellowing of the skin (jaundice) and can indicate that liver damage is present.
GGT or Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase is an enzyme found in many organs throughout the body, but is most prevalent in the liver.
GGT levels are usually low, but can rise following liver damage. A GGT test is also particularly sensitive to detecting bile duct problems.
Globulins are a group term for proteins in your blood which play a vital role in liver function, blood clotting, and fighting infection.
The amount of globulin helps indicate many conditions such as liver damage or disease, kidney diseases or nutritional problems.
Proteins are vital parts of all cells and tissues, and are important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
The total protein is the total amount of two classes of proteins in your blood known as albumin and globulin.
Abnormal levels can result from liver or kidney disorders.
